Having trouble getting your dialogue audio to sound really present in your film and video projects? In this episode we talk about using compression and normalization to sweeten up your sound and bring it to the forefront of your mix.
I show how to do this in Adobe Audition but you can do the same thing in most video editing apps like Premiere, or any audio editing app including Audacity, Reaper, etc.
Now I’m not claiming to be an expert on compression, so if you see things that we could improve here, please leave your input in the comments–we love learning to improve!
